 See how the dynamic pages are implemented. Very simple, isn't it?
+\section{Going further}
+If you have time before the others complete their labs...
+\subsection{Initramfs booting}
+Configure your kernel to include the contents of the \code{nfsroot}
+directory as an initramfs.
+Before doing this, you will need to create an \code{init} link in the
+toplevel directory to \code{sbin/init}, because the kernel will try to
+execute \code{/init}. You will also need to mount {\em devtmpfs} from
+the \code{rcS} script, it cannot be mounted automatically by the kernel
+when you're booting from an initramfs.
+Note: you won't need to modify your \code{root=} setting in the kernel
+command line. It will just be ignored if you have an initramfs.
